WASHINGTON—US President Barack Obama Thursday returned the calls of a long list of global leaders, including those of Israel and Egypt, who contacted him to congratulate him on re-election, officials said.

Obama also spoke to the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, India, Turkey, Brazil, Colombia and NATO’s secretary general, the White House said.

“In each call, he thanked his counterpart for their friendship and partnership thus far and expressed his desire to continue close cooperation moving ahead,” the White House said.

    Bakit naman siya tatawag sa Pilipinas ? Wala naman tayong silbi, wala tayong langis. Kung may langis tayo siguradong tumawag na siya.

    Sec. Lacierda assumed Prez Obama was busy that’s why Malacanang just sent a congratulatory letter and didn’t call Obama for PNoy to congratulate him personally. It was understandable that Obama was in a state of euphoria on the night the election results came out and couldn’t immediately call back well-wishers. But had Lacierda tried and recommended PNoy would have been one of the 13 or so leaders whose calls Pres. Obama returned later on. Of course Obama as a sign of courtesy would acknowledge every call from leaders of other countries especially whom the US considers its allies. Lacierda missed that one.
